Answer: 
CFM??? you need to be able to run 100+ PSI.
i would highly recommend not use this on less than a 5 gal compressor able to push out about 5scfm @ 90PSI if youre planning on doing any sort of shingles etc...

I use a Campbell Hausfield framing nailer and a RIgid roofing nailer. Both operate just fine using an 8 gallon compressor at 4CFM.

80 psi minimum. Most portable compressors fire up to 120 psi and when they drop below 80 psi they recharge again.

Answer: 
Hi Ray, the manual does not list the cfm. However the manual list the recommended PSI for operation, which is 70-120 PSI. You should not use an air compressor which exceeds 200 PSI.
I see where air compressors list SCFM at 90PSI, which will very depending on the models.

Answer: 
For sheathing, you're better off using a framing nailer with ring shank nails. Most code recommends 2" or better for sheathing nails.

The specs list the nail gauge at 15 and the nail angle at 0. It appears that most nailers use a nail angle of 15. ??????

Hi Bob S, yes , you're right. The information for nails is incorrect. The angle of the nail is 15 degree. The wire gauge diameter is 11.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by its ok for diy all of my cordless tools are made by ridgid so when it came time to by a new coil nailer I decided to buy a ridgid gun. my first impressions of the gun were it's lightweight and affordable. after using it for the first time my impression of it is that it's a slow gun to fire and it seems like it's cheaply made. i have a feeling it won't stand up to every day use on a construction site. it's a good gun if you're going to put on your own roof, but I wouldn't recommend it to a professional that uses it everyday unless you have a backup. June 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 3rd replacemt gun has not lasted through 100 squares I purchased one of these guns and it went out within 3 weeks, i returned to store and they exchaged for a new one. This one lasted a few months but went out again, i couldnt find anyone in our area that works on them, so i had to take to tool world in home depot for repair. They had the gun for 3 months, and then called stating they were unable to fix it. They gave me a refurb, lasted a week. I then talked with the manager and they gave me a new one. Less than a month later it is now out! I would not recomend this gun to anyone. Buy a bostich gun, cheap and easy to have repaired, and very dependable. They will not exchange the gun anymore, junk. March 8, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great for casual user Light weight and capable tool. Rubber retainer and spring for nail clog came apart after a few hours of use. Replaced spring from local hardware store and used copper wire for retainer. Good nailer for occasional user but not for a commercial user. You can sign up for Ridgid Lifetime warranty for free on their website. Comes with case, safety glasses and tools. May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Nailer Purchased this unit to replace existing older unit. Worked like a charm, installed about 25 squares of shingles and never missed a beat. i like others am concerned about the plastic coil cover breaking, would have given 5 stars if not for this. April 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 15-Gauge Roofing Coil Nailer It kicks like a 45 caliber, so says son. But, is doing it's job. March 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great working gun but didnt last long Bought this gun to replace my old ridge runner and it performed excellent jammed only twice on me the entire time ive used it i bought mine on August 19 and the plastic nail housing broke in late October and the head blew out on December 19 it made it to the last job worked excellent up until then i put between 10 and 20 square a day down with this gun 5 days a week its put down a lot of shingle but even still i dont think it should of died already but is has a lifetime warranty which is a pain but will be taken care of bottom line it's a good gun just make sure you have a back up for in-between service December 30, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Has some flaws!!! I will first state the problems. The nailer does not come with a belt clip. weird. It does have skids to keep it from sliding off the roof, but I used it on a 6/12 pitch and it WILL slide off if you don't place it down just right. one side does not have a skid and it scratches the clear nail cover pretty bad instantly. The skids are a hard plastic, not rubber. The nailer is supposed to have a magnet to make sure the nail coil stays in place so you can lock in the cover easily. Guess what, no magnet here. I struggle to get the nails to stay in the guide every time. you have to make sure you pull out just enough of the coil to feed into the guide, or you will have to tweak it just to get the nails to catch where the non existent magnetic guide is. Most nailer do this but just expect this to happen. When you do get the nails loaded, the first fire will not shoot a nail. you van to shoot it twice. I have tried to get the nailer to counter sink slightly. well, the nailer will not counter sink or sink above the material. I move the counter sink adjuster and it doesn't change the depth at all. I feel I may have purchased a Friday model because there are just too many issues with my nailer. There are plenty of good reviews so I may have received a lemon. I will swap it at Depot for another and see if the issues remain. It's a well balanced nailer and the orange color of Ridgid is good because it's easier to see your tool on the roof or ground with a quick glance. The clear nail window is helpful so you know when it's time to reload. if the next one I get has issues, I'll just pick up a Hitachi. March 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Life is short. Buy a nail gun! HUGE timesaver compared to nailing down shingles by hand. Occasionally it wouldn't drive the nails flush, but it's a 95 year old house. When lumber is that old it gets hard, like concrete. The ones that weren't flush were at least 3/4 of the way in and STRAIGHT, so a few taps of a hammer and they were perfect. I would imagine that this would work perfectly on newer construction, using OSB for decking instead of hardwood from 1920. January 5, 2016
